Mike Rosenberg, folk singer/songwriter, familiar to millions by his stage name, Passenger, journeys to South Africa this coming February. Huh? The “Let Her Go” singer, the song doing its rounds on the airwaves since 2013, and probably the song your girlfriend wants to get married with…

“Let Her Go” not only became one of the UK’s biggest selling singles of all-time; it also spiraled into adoration – being the ninth most Shazamed song in the world, soundtracked to the most popular ad over the Superbowl and over 400 million views on YouTube.

Passenger Tour

The busking sensation continues to achieve an overwhelming response from fans and their love for Passenger’s heartbreakingly beautiful music. Whispers is Passenger’s sixth studio album, and although it only took five weeks to record, this cinematic sound brings Mike’s words to life, with guitar, glockenspiel, melodica and various percussion instruments filtering through.

Having just wrapped up a sold out tour in Europe, and an already sold out tour in Australia and New Zealand scheduled for January, Passenger now makes the trip to South Africa with performances set in Durban, Johannesburg and at the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts in Cape Town.

“We are excited to have an international performer of this calibre as part of the line – up for this year’s concert series,” says Sarah Struys, events manager at Kirstenbosch. “This takes our Summer Sunset Concert series to a new level. “

Passenger will be performing at Durban Botanic Gardens on Friday, 13th February and at Zoo Lake in Johannesburg on Saturday, 14th February 2015 presented by Jacaranda FM. Local talent will support the UK legend at the Johannesburg and Durban concerts that are both brought to you by Seed Experiences.
